This volume introduces engineers and healthcare professionals to the latest in neurosurgical robotic technology. The chapters in this book are organized into two parts and cover basic engineering concepts that underpin surgical robotics; various robotic platforms and how these systems make their way to the clinic; popular applications of surgical robots in neurosurgery within subspecialties; and a discussion on the future development of neurosurgical robotic systems. In the Neuromethods series style, chapters include the kind of detail and key advice from the specialists needed to get successful results in your clinic.

Cutting-edge and thorough, Neurosurgical Robotics is a valuable resources for scientists and engineers interested in learning more about this fascinating and developing field.

"This book is the first of its kind to review the use of robotics in the neurosurgical subspecialty. ... The audience for this book includes primarily training and practicing neurosurgeons but also could include interested ancillary staff, medical students, or engineers involved in research regarding neurosurgical robotics. ... The chapters are well organized and thorough. This book is the first to describe robotics in neurosurgery, and thus, there is no direct comparison to other books in the field." (Fady Charbel, Doody's Book Reviews, June 4, 2021)
